Shouldn't I be able to max any game right now with this setup?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I have an i7-2600k overclocked to 4.3 Ghz, 2 560ti's in SLI, SSD c300, and 8 Gb of 1866Mhz ram and my computer still struggles to run BF3 at max....shouldnt this setup just crush that game? Could i have some corrupt files or something? I have the new drivers too....What am i doing wrong?

What you're doing wrong is thinking that 2x 560ti are going to be able to max (the most?) intense game out at the moment...

That game will push 2x 580s.

You won't get a minimum of 60fps with ultra everything on BF3, if using a 2560x1200 even if you had an 580 SLI.
With 1680x1050, a 6970 CF or 570 SLI are only just there.

http://www.techspot.com/review/458-battlefield-3-performance/page3.html as reference.

I hope that helps.

I play on Ultra with 2x AA at 1920x1080 and have no issues with my 560's. Just don't think that you are going to get 16x AA or anything crazy.

I run ultra at 1920x1080 with AA off, no dramas. You shouldn't have any problems doing that.

I would think it would be close but definitely not "crush". Turn AA way down. Also OC those 560s if you haven't.

Just so you know BF3 uses more than 1Gb of Vram, unless the memory leaks been fixed.
